[19:44] <+Elisa-BlackwindProject> Greetings, everyone! I am Elisa, head of the Blackwind Project. It is a new roleplaying games publisher, currently kickstarting its own set of Core Rules. Our purpose is twofold: to give the roleplayers who appreciate creativity and plot the tools to craft great game sessions, and to make quality modules, with complex stories and great art.
[19:40] <+stephendewey> Hello everyone! My name is Stephen Dewey. I’m an indie game designer that uses the publishing imprint Cavalry Games. My “brand” if you were looking for one is generally games that are a bit strange, lighter on the rules, and are designed to leave an emotional impact with the players. Games that are by and large emotional, impactful, immersive, and evocative.
[19:41] <+stephendewey> My latest project is Gather: Children of the Evertree ((Link: https://tinyurl.com/yaena6um)https://tinyurl.com/yaena6um) which is on Kickstarter right now, in the second half of it’s funding month. I am most popular for my game Ten Candles however which was my first (and only other) Kickstarter project. Ten Candles was nominated for several awards, including four ENnies.
[19:42] <+stephendewey> I have also been recognized as a Game Chef finalist for my game Uncanny Valley, and have published a couple smaller games including To Serve Her Wintry Hunger and Annalers of the Skein.
[19:43] <+stephendewey> I’m here to talk about Gather though, which is a game completely contained in a deck of cards (no rulebook) that you can pick up and play with zero prep and no GM with 2-8 players. It pulls on themes of tabletop gaming, live action gaming, freeform games, and improvisation.
[19:30] <+WCRobert> Hello folks, my name is Robert Turk and my company is called Wicked Clever. I make games that are fun, sometimes quirky, and ultimately different from what is already out there. My latest project is a Sci-Fi Survival Horror RPG called Starship Infernum. ((Link: http://kck.st/2Lqefui)http://kck.st/2Lqefui)
[19:30] <+WCRobert> This is my 4th game on Kickstarter, and my 7th kickstarter overall. It is a pick up and play RPG, intended to be run over a single session, but is infinitely replayable. It uses the Blackjack system I invented for Purgatory House (which has been a huge hit at conventions), buts adds a few new twists to fit the sci-fi survival horror theme.
[19:30] <+WCRobert> Our goal is set so that we can print hardback books with black and white, pen & ink illustrations by some great artists and ultimately deliver a high quality physical product that is a blast to play.
[19:31] <+WCRobert> We have 13 days to go, and just passed the 50% funded mark this morning.
[19:36] <+pruttm> Hello. My name is Pete Ruttman and have created Secret Agents of CROSS. A Setting for Savage Worlds.
[19:39] <+pruttm> Secret Agents of CROSS is a full-color 170-page setting book. It is your guide on how the world of CROSS operates, how to make player characters, and how to run CROSS missions steeped in secret spy stuff, religious history, modern terrorism, and the supernatural.
[19:30] <+KevinSherry> Hello, I’m Kevin Sherry, I’m a children’s book author and my new game is Scales & Tales

[19:36] <+John> Okee dokee! My name is John Seibel and the writer of the RPG, The Harvesters via Troll Lord Games.
[19:36] <+John> Harvesters is an anthropromorphic RPG.
[19:38] <+John> The PCs can be badgers, otters, squirrels, rabbits/hares, or mice. With the slimmed down version, the characters can be fighters, magic-users, clerics, or thieves.
[19:39] <+John> I think with the expanded version other ones will be thrown in.
[19:39] <+John> But, as with all games, we like to leave most of that up to the DM/GM.
